The 2015 D23 Expo will feature the world premier of Disney in Concert: A Silly Symphony Celebration, which is a live concert performance that features a 32-piece orchestra that celebrates the Silly Symphony animated short films and it’s music. Hosted by film historian Leonard Martin, fans will be able to view select Silly Symphony shorts from Disney Archives while live music is performed in synchronization with the film as it would have been performed in the 20’s and 30’s. This special performance will showcase music of The Three Little Pigs, The Old Mill, and many other classics.
